Summary
This overview of Charles Dickens' life and work from the Famous Authors series discusses the author's happy childhood, during which he was close to his father and went to school. However, financial troubles later forced the family to move to London, and Dickens began absorbing the bustling city couched in fog where his novels would be set. Due to his father's debt, he could no longer attend school but rather worked in a factory while his family was in debtor's prison. The contrast between his younger years and this experience of poverty marked his fiction forever. Eventually Dickens was able to return to school and become a law reporter, and he grew to dislike law and satirize it. The success of The Pickwick Papers started his life as a popular, successful public figure, and he proceeded to work hard on serials, novels, theatrical endeavors, and editing magazines throughout his life
